Dr. Fusan Alehan and colleagues at Baskent University Faculty of Medicine, Ankara, and colleagues note that although migraine has been reported to be associated with classic gluten enteropathy, it has not been studied extensively in asymptomatic celiac disease.
As they point out, most patients with celiac disease are asymptomatic or present with extraintestinal manifestations.
"Our finding of a higher prevalence of tTGA antibodies in migraine patients suggests that an association between migraine and celiac disease might exist in the pediatric age group," the investigators conclude, "and that further studies should be performed."
Bonnie - not surprising. I find that migraines are a common symptom of gluten intolerance or celiac in my clients.
